Old Glory Day

Please be aware that all 2021 event dates are tentative at this point. We may be forced to cancel events due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Decisions to cancel events are out of our control – they are determined by the City of Chardon, who receives mandates from the Geauga County Board of Health and the State of Ohio. We will make every effort to reschedule events at a later date if possible, but this cannot be guaranteed.

Kids decorating bikes for parade around the square

Old Glory Day is held on July 4th every year on the Square. The event is sponsored by the Chardon Square Association, the City of Chardon, and the Chardon Area Chamber of Commerce.

Decorations are provided for the children to decorate their bikes, scooters or wagons, followed by a children’s parade around the Square lead by the Chardon Fire Department.

Following the parade is an afternoon of games, music, face painting, balloon animals and a pie eating contest. The Rotary will be providing ice cream, the Kiwanis will have balloons for the bikes and Wal-Mart is providing water.

Popcorn, hot dogs, and other snacks are available for sale by the Chardon Square Association.
